Dr. Michael Wilson is an Associate Professor of Neurology at UC San Francisco and a member of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences. He completed medical school at UCSF and a Neurology residency at the Harvard Neurology Residency Program at Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women's Hospitals. He did postdoctoral training in neurovirology with Dr. Paul Duprex at Boston University's National Emerging Infectious Diseases Labs before returning to UCSF to train in metagenomics and microbiology with Dr. Joseph DeRisi in the Dept of Biochemistry and Biophysics. His lab employs genomic technologies, including metagenomic next-generation sequencing, immune repertoire sequencing, bulk and single cell transcriptomics and phage display assays to better understand the pathophysiology of a variety of neuroinflammatory syndromes ranging from multiple sclerosis to infectious and autoimmune encephalitis.
